It seems to me you'd need a signed ORDER for continuance, or you should be in court on Tuesday. If, though, you do have an order, there would be no need to appear, provided the order has been filed in with the clerk.
No attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by this communication.
Judges don't typically sign motions; they sign orders granting or denying motions. If the court has approved or granted the motion for continuance, you need not appear. If the court has not approved or granted the motion, or if you are unsure, you should plan on appearing. Alternatively, you can try to contact the other side (or the other side's attorney if they have one) and ask him/her whether the case has been continued.

Your question is a bit confusing as Judges do not usually sign motions, but orders. You should review your document again. If it is an order granting one of the party's motion for continuance, it should state that your case has been continued OFF of the September 4th date. If it does not say that, or if you are unclear, then it would be in your best interest to be there on the 4th.
I hope this information helps answer your question(s).
